It List: Tuesday

First of all, we have a ton of new pictures from our excellent new photographer Stephieyaknow over in our photo section (both party pics and live show pics) so go check those out.  We have more coming in the next day or so as well.  Shows tonight:

90's Night with Yeahdef (Hailey's): So I made a little trip to Backyard Beach Bar the other night to check out the party that was put together by the Etc. Etc! group, and aside from having to deal with what might have been the worst bar tenders in town, as well as being forced to watch one BBB employee pour a bucket of water all over a still-plugged-in speaker after it caught on fire (I'm no electrical expert, but this just didn't seem right to me, especially considering that Backyard Beach Bar has already burned down once), the party itself was a pretty good time.  I mention this only because the DJs (Billingham's Defense System, etc.) were spinning a lot of (formerly?) guilty pleasure 90's dance pop at the party, and I wonder if Friday night was a pretty good indicator of what most "90's nights" are like around here, considering that I've never been able to bring myself to go to one.  If so, then they aren't as bad as I thought, because I think I'd often rather hear this or this or this kind of disposable early 90's hip house and pop house (all of which I believe were played on Friday, and many of which seemed to be based on this critically acclaimed Chicago House masterpiece) as opposed to some no name local jackass playing "his own real songs with real instruments that he wrote" and blah blah "puts on a good show" support local music brah.  You know?  Apparently a lot of other people around here agree because there were probably as many paying customers at Backyard Beach Bar on Friday as there were in all of Deep Ellum that night, for better or worse.  
Disqo Disco (Fallout Lounge)  

New Science Projects/Big Spirit/Baby Talk/A Smile Full of Ale/Neil Corbett/Roy Robertson (1919 Hemphill): Most of our readers are probably familiar with the oft gigging New Science Projects by now (I have a really funny picture of that dude getting in my friend's face during a performance, but I'll spare you), but some might be both unfamiliar AND interested in the fragile folk of Detroit's Big Spirit-- yes yes, Iron and Wine and the Microphones and K Records and everything else you think of when you read the phrase "fragile folk," but this group is pretty enjoyable once you get past the "spot the influences" game.  

There are more events listed on our show calendar if you want to take a look.

A smile Full of Ale canceled and Roy Robertson will probably be playing as/with the smitten kittens tonight. Despite the goofy name, I think their good.
Baby Talk will probably be scary.
And you should come to this show to keep me from being bored.

Def the worst bartenders in town. I think its because they had to check and see if their sharpie eyebrows were coming off between pouring each drink.

Sound was all DIY too but nothing was peaking on our end or on the board. Then again, there is nothing better than having a guy who had been noticeably not dancing all night come up to you to say:

"You're my new favorite DJ. You just set two speakers on fire."

I literally set the party on fire. The vibe was really fun though. A lot of good people and minimal pretentiousness hence maximum dancing. We need more parties like that in Dallas.

DJ Teenage Wolf tonight @ Disqo Disco.

After the buses from Austin were shut down a few weeks ago due to ice, we've rescheduled and it's time to wobbly-bass your face off tonight.

Yeh its nice to know that people still deal with the void (musically) around dfw and make it sound sexy like ghostcar does.

there is no musical void in DFW. seriously. Its fine. Just because there aren't 10 shows every night like in Austin, doesn't mean its a void. Its not a CLUSTERFUCK, if that's what you mean. You like clusterfucks? I don't.

1919 was cool. jack with one eye was awesome. the frenz are everywhere, but can get you a discount at guitar center. ghostcar turns ghosthustlers faces to melded shit.
